• Coming soon: Bike lanes, buffered shoulders over the Saint Georges Bridge

    Amazing what a little paint can do. The Army Corps of Engineers has recently repaired the surface of the St. Georges Bridge. A new buffered shoulder has been delineated and bike lane paint markings are being placed leading up to the bridge on both sides. NOTE: Northbound lanes are closed at this time, and cyclists are asked to avoid using the bridge until construction crews have completed their work. Further information TBA, pending a DelDOT press release.

      Since bikers will soon be allowed to bike on the Old St. Georges Bridge, will pedestrians be allowed to walk on it? Awhile back the News-Journal reported a pedestrian was stopped by police, for attempting to use the bridge to walk across the Canal.

      We're hoping that's the case, but time will tell. Right now, we're very thankful for the road diet (2 lanes vs 4) and inclusion of shoulders on the bridge. It was many years in the making.
